Good luck to everyone applying this cycle!
2' received today
Got my secondary
Received my secondary today!
Does anyone have any stats or info about how many people get secondaries compared to how many people get II?
You got an interview invite???
got the email saying my application was complete today!
I think he meant to say secondary. Some people think “II” means secondary when it actually means interview invite
Sent from my iPad using SDN mobile
Would anyone be willing to share the secondary prompt?
There are a few demographic q's, a section where it asks you to list work and volunteer experience, and then:
Why have you chosen to apply to the TUC College of Osteopathic Medicine? 250 wds
Why should the Committee accept you into this year’s class? 250 wds
Please describe the personal characteristics you possess and the life experiences you have had that would contribute to your success at becoming an outstanding Osteopathic Physician. Please include information that will enable the Admissions Committee to understand your unique qualities. 500 wds
Please describe your exposure to and understanding of Osteopathic Medicine. Content may include your initial introduction to the profession, its history, use in medical practice today, or any other aspects that may highlight Osteopathic Medicine’s uniqueness and synergy with your envisioned future practice of medicine. 500 wds
Submitted mine today, a bit of a beast
Thank you!!! This is my top choice... just waiting for verification to get all the secondaries so I appreciate it
For the secondary question about employment are you guys describing the position or strictly answering their question? Same with the questions that ask about awards and volunteer experiences.
submitted... hoping for love from this school! Good luck everyone this is quite a large secondary
How are people abbreviating their school? What is the correct way?
TUCOM? TUCCOM? Tuoro California? TU COM?
Hi everyone, just heard about this school and hoping to apply. Thank you for posting the prompts!
Does anyone know if the casper test is required for this school?
I did TUCOM.... not sure they care much but that's the way a faculty member I know abbreviated so I went with it.
I did TUC-COM. The website seems to use TUC COM. The dash just lowers the word count
Did you guys write your responses to the secondary questions on the same document they gave us with the questions, or on a new document without the questions?
Just submitted mine on the same document.
Hoping for some guidance on this secondary question:
Are you a re-applicant who has previously interviewed? If yes, what was the result of that interview and what changes, if any, have you made which should affect a different outcome?
Is this question referring to having previously interviewed at TUCOM? Or previously interviewed at all? I interviewed at a different school last year, and I'm not sure if this what they're asking for.
I took it as at their school, I thought they could've been more specific with this question...
Does this school have mandatory attendance for lectures?
Edit: looks like it does.
Not going to submit my secondary anymore. Good luck everyone!
any interview invites yet?
Unless something has changed for the class of 2023, there are no mandatory lectures. We have recorded lectures that can be streamed online, and as it is, very few people attend lecture.
Weird. I read the student handbook and it said mandatory lectures.
Guess i'm back in the mix boys and girls.
any interviews yet?
Hey guys I'm having trouble submitting my letters of rec through Interfolio since I can't find TUC anywhere in their system. Can anyone help me with this?
Second year TUCOM student here, let me know if you guys have any questions
Do you know when was the first interview sent? Like around what time of the year
How do you like living in Vallejo?
Most likely October- we still need to sort out details such as who's giving tours
I like Mare Island, it's pretty nice area relative to the rest of Vallejo. I especially like how most places (i.e. SF, Sac) are about an hour away with Berkeley and Concord/Walnut Creek being about 30-45 minutes away.
Just got an II! My first one, so happy!!
Congrats!!!!!!!! Do you mind sharing when you were complete/if the II was by email?
Thanks!! Got the complete email for my secondary July 10th, II was by email and if you have gmail the email went under the "promotions" tab for some reason so make sure to keep an eye on that
Oh good to know, thanks! I was complete 7/9 and super excited about this school so I'm going to be somewhat neurotic about checking my email now haha
Was wondering when we would start hearing from this school! Congrats!! Would you also be willing to share your stats?
Also, on a side note, this was probably one of the beastliest secondary I've encountered
Interview invite a few minutes ago via email!
Congratulations. Good luck on the interview. Do you mind sharing your stats?
Do you guys know if they would start looking at the Secondary App before the LOR are in?
Just received my first interview invite this season to Touro a few moments ago.
Congratulations!!!!! Do you mind sharing when your were "complete"?
Does anyone know if all the touro U's (cali, nevada, ny) have different or same secondary prompts?
does touro california require casper before II?
Not from what I can tell- only TouroNY specifically said to submit casper scores.
My primary app was finished on 7/23 which includes LOR and transcripts.
My secondary was complete on 8/10.
Hope that helps!
Thanks! I was complete 7/6 and still nothing... love this school so keeping my fingers crossed but it seems they "skipped" over me for the time being.
I just got my II too, do you know how it works? Like how do I know what the available dates are? Do i just call?
Is there another portal for this school to monitor our status or is it only the application profile?
Yes you call and they list available dates to choose from!
